ASP allows you to do processing on the server side.
A static HTML form has no abilities to do anything on server side.

To connect to a database you need something on the server side to provide that access, this is where asp comes into play. This is for security purposes, since you do not want to provide the world the username/password to access the database.

I think degreenet is just wanting to rename his files so they have the .html extension rather than the .asp extension.

degreenet, there are lots of ways of doing this, but the easiest is probably to install ISAPI_Rewrite on your server and do some rewrite .html URLs so they point to the .ASP ones.
